Glion Dolly Electric Scooter Review

 

If you ask me, I think that this scooter is very much like the IMAX S1 Electric Scooter (which you can see here) because they are both pretty expensive but still somewhat worth it. I really like the Glion Dolly; it’s unlike most other scooters and that makes it unique.

I’ve written numerous times that I’m not sure such a thing as “luxury scooters” exist, but if they did, this scooter would either classify as one or be pretty darn close.

In fact, this scooter reminds me a lot of the Razor E300 which is traditionally know to be a scooter for kids, although it works fine with adults as well.

Not to say that this scooter is strictly for adults because it’s not. Is it most often used by adults? Well, yes it is but that doesn’t limit the Glion Dolly in any way.

 

Initial Thoughts

If you do decide to purchase this motorized scooter, you will soon notice that in terms of numbers, it’s not all that impressive. It really does resemble some other luxurious products in that way, you’re really paying for the name and not the specs or abilities.

For example, the top speed on the Glion Dolly is a nice 15 mph just like the Razor E300. It’s not that fast, but it does get the job done for your average consumer and user.

The range on this scooter is also average at best, running 15 miles (or an hour at top speeds). Not too impressive, but still better than a lot of other scooters available. If you’re just planning on using it locally, then you’ll be just fine.

Something I did really like that was surely above average was the charge time. In just a little over 3 hours, you should get a full charge! Maybe you’re not so thrilled about that number at first, but just head over to my reviews if you want to see what time some other scooters are charging in. A scooter like the E100 takes about 12 hours to get a full charge and it only has a range of 40 minutes with a speed of 10 mph!

Sure, it is technically a kids scooter but it still goes to show you that the statistics on the Glion Dolly are pretty nice in comparison.

But out of all the nice things that this electric scooter had to offer, the thing that impressed me the most was the execution. By that I mean how well the scooter actually rode. Smooth and silent is the game of the Glion Dolly, and it will never be any different. This, along with many other factors certainly make the Glion Dolly electric scooter one of my personal favorites. It’s one scooter I can really recommend to anyone, and that’s not something that happens so often.

 

How Does It Work?

If you have any experience with electric scooters, you will know the drill with this model from Glion. Heck, if you have any experience with conventional scooters you’ll be pretty close to knowing all there is to know anyway!

When it arrives to your home, it will probably not have much charge, if any at all. I always suggest a full charge initially for all electric scooters when you first get it. Not only will you be able to get more practice time in the beginning, but I feel that it’s healthy for the batteries as well (although that may be just me).

After you’re charged up, make sure to read the instructions manual and follow some safety tips which I have listed here. Once you’ve done those things, you’re ready to go!

Is This Scooter Worth The Price?

This is where things get sticky. I do love this scooter, but I’m not the biggest fan of the price. I will admit that you’re really going to be getting a high quality electric scooter here, but at that price I’m not sure how many of you would actually make the purchase.

If you were to ask me, I’d say it’s probably worth the price, especially if you plan on using it for commuting purposes. Think about how much money you spend on gas each month. Now think about how much money you can potentially save by traveling via electric scooter to places like the gym, work, grocery store, etc.

In that sense, this scooter is definitely worth the price because you’ll be saving money long term! However, if you’re just looking for a gimmick scooter or to just have fun on weekends, this scooter is still one you can consider but it probably wouldn’t be my first option.
